Forum: feature_films Subject: Any chance of a silent film section?

???
There is now a film noir section (Nice idea FTW), and I must know whether there is any chance of a silent film section. Silent films are not crap. However, It is crap that it's almost impossible to find them on IA. Giving them their own section would make them easier to find, which would make the internet less crappy. Plus then they might get more downloads than crappy crap like "Sex Madness".

I've never had trouuble finding the silent films on Archive. Just browse with results sorted by date and look for anything before about 1928.

Or look under subject/keywords. Look in the S's under silent, silents.

That should at least turn up a fair number, but it seems like the uploaders pick out the keywords individually, so they're not very uniform. There are more that don't have the keyword attached. I don't suppose anybody at Archive wants to take on the task of making them consistent, do you? Since you folks have so much time on your hands and all... :)
